the quarter finals with one nil win of switzerland here in st petersburg and as the swiss ended up eventually ending the game with just ten men now with regards to the goal it came on the sixty six minute. effed emmel forsberg on the edge of the area where he was in space and his shot black power it was slightly weak but it took a massive deflection before going past the keeper that affection coming off man well i can g. and keep a really standing no chance with that now we have all to the glory with us now consultant in the form of fee for communications director who's actually at the game here and stay with us in st petersburg thanks for joining us what was the atmosphere like there today what was first of all my outstanding stadium fantastic fans everything was picture perfect. the result was not good for sort of course.
there was really a fun. event i don't think it was a top top game. but you know a lot of pressure from both. switzerland hope finally to go to the next day john the they have to wear the no four years so what do you think of the tournament so far it was as you said perhaps a very tight game not the most exciting in the tournament but overall it's been quite interesting on the pitch i have to admit my middle of the people here also journalists former colleagues there were very skeptical critical but after three four days the mood changed people got another view another perception of this country that this part of the country because it's a void big you know. so also after the game so the swedish the swiss fans you know just talking and pointing out. let's put it like that the
good positive thing of this came to there was at least everyone everybody in the darkest corner of kentucky and ohio know the world is switzerland and the world to sweden the swedish or the yellow ones who are qualified and they're the ones who are just worse they go home the thing is as you say i believe somebody wasn't a football fan before the world cup they are now a football fan even if for a day or a few days my grandma was actually in touch with me saying have you seen the game did you see the girls amazing eighty one and you found football fan but something you mentioned there about the sheer size of russia almost eleven hundred cities twelve stadiums. a lot of concern beforehand as you say about the about the organization the size the travel football violence etc. how is this world cup compared to the others that you've been to and do you think any of those concerns maybe have been justified. the first world cup i have been was in ninety four in the u.s. as a journalist and then on the last one was two thousand and fourteen i was involved
to people and you know it's always kind of easy to say it's the best you cannot really compare you know but so far what i have seen is really amazing no accident no whatsoever kind of problems security wise i hope it goes on like that it's not finished yet the stadiums are already. as i said the only really kind of criticism if i can say is that you know it's quite hard for the fans in order to try and interact in the communicate with the even with the taxi drivers the they hardly speak english but you cannot blame the taxi driver probably the french or the learner a few words in russian and this is also with me i don't know and so were. difficult kind of for the stars but for the rest the really fantastic so for your sas league world cup especially. because the big teams are not here i mean of course germany
spain portugal and so on italy not even this year so it's kind of good that wove top of the so-called little teams the only big one is a brazil let's say and maybe maybe england but i mean this is peter scald and i don't know if english is really a favorite colombia is a good now you mentioned of course the interaction between the locals and the people who are visiting russia this tournaments as dan said spread over eleven cities how important do you think that is they get to the distance that it's covering that might be a challenge for some but also to bring the world cup to so many communities that may never have seen so many people coming into that time i think it's very important honestly. at least that the people the friends i have for you they really use this opportunity to to to see a part of the country because you cannot see the whole russian course but it was the same in brazil
a lot of people criticize it before because you're four hours from let's say rio de janeiro at the time the mouse or the muscle so they said it's a march but at the end of the day everybody wanted to be here all over and i think it's it's for the country who is hosting the world cup it's always good to just will showcase what they have for of course the time charge of reality but it's it's it's it's good for everybody it was like so much for joining us here not too great to get your take on the world cup on the game as well to go consultant former feature communications director. for many flips over the years so i know the game and so i got. all these. only
about what happens on the pitch for the final school it's about the passion from the fans it's the age of the superman each killing their own isp and spending two to twenty million at one player. it's an experience like nothing else on here because i want to share what i think what i know about the beautiful guy my great so well all chance for. six point eight. what politicians do sometimes. they put themselves on the line they get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be present. for something i want to be pressured. into going to be press this is like the before story of the morning people. i'm interested always in the white house. said.
hello again from the new center in moscow and other headline stories this hour and now has silas from new york has become the face of a pirate and growing movement among american liberals he released a video which quickly went viral calling on people to walk away from what he sees as the phony liberalism of the democratic policy we spoke to the man who started the campaign to find out what klum today is and why he thinks it's gaining momentum . well i i myself was a lifelong liberal democratic voter i would say kind of a democrat by default because i'm a gay man and i think that the expectation for a lot of minority groups is that we are supposed to vote democrat and that we are supposed to be liberals so i found myself sort of in that tribe on the left most of my life but there were things for years that made me extremely uncomfortable as i
started to see the identity politics and the politically correct culture just sort of take over common sense it just became began to get more and more out of control and it was something that i could no longer tolerate i find this behavior very very oppressive i knew other people were feeling this way so i decided to create a campaign and create this video to kick off the campaign so i am walking away. and i encourage all of you to do the same. with. what i really wanted to do was get people back in touch with their voices and to push back against the narrative on the left to make these testimonials and video for more written form and just kind of tell their stories and the video has indeed generated a huge amount of feedback almost thirty thousand people have joined the movement since its release last month that with the hash tag walk away trending over the weekend now it seems that other liberals have been inspired to reveal that i have reasons for turning their backs on democrats when i say. i was instantly
hooked to his message that democrats don't care about us not one bit they walked away from us a long time ago it is time for us to do the same i'd rather walk away and be a part. of. the right. things the scared of the left this is where the party is going and this is why i'm sure you want oh. however some liberal outlets that have covered this story have claimed that most of them and then tim has been generated by a right wing is rather than actual x. liberals well if the founder of walkway campaign how he'd respond to that. my campaign is not mostly can pro comprise of people who are conservative and in fact anybody who's saying that i encourage them to go into the base this is what so brilliant about the campaign if i don't say so myself you can't love the video testimonials don't lie those aren't russian bots if you will and these are you know
these are manufactured stories these are real people telling the real stories so for anybody who is skeptical please go to the page and see with your own eyes and listen with your own ears to the stories of real people who have really walked away from the left because they're completely fed up with what's happening on the left. and all the democratic party faces the walkaway movement donald trump's enjoying a little popularity boost a recent poll suggests his approval rating those two points last month to forty seven percent and perhaps surprisingly support for the us president seems to have been growing most among hispanic voters his more pivotal with. the month of june wasn't too good for the white house and the court of public opinion lots of media rates trump over the coals for the treatment of migrant families along the u.s. border now in the denunciation of the donald latino americans took center stage we
saw the president just a few moments ago on twitter tweeting again that this was the democrats' fault and not acknowledging at all that he has the ability to stop it with perhaps just a phone call it's not right it's immoral it's inhumane and we need to stop that and we've known since donald trump came down those stairs calling mexicans rapists and criminals we've known that we as american citizens would be on watch but according to a harvard harris poll thirty five percent of americans who identify as hispanic either approve or somewhat approve of the trumpet ministrations policies now that survey was conducted after trump signed an executive order ending the separation of illegal migrant families back in may those numbers are only twenty five percent in a single executive order to really explain a spike in approval this time now fifty seven percent of hispanic americans according to another poll approve of donald trump's economic policies we decided to speak to some folks in the local latino community to see if they can explain these
poll numbers have no explanation and definitely not my kind of people i think because the people. at least listen to tone trump and i believe what he says it makes no sense at all because it's mostly hispanic that the border that are being denied entry with their children so i can't speak for them do you think maybe there's other issues that are important to them i think that they're probably unaware of exactly what's going on as most of us are what would be some reason that that people in hispanic communities would support trump i mean what possible reason could there be i guess i mean he's smart financially with much trouble his reaction perhaps specific to this city in his words to say you know that they do want to cut into town ways again and they want to make a civilized process of. yes there's a lot of pros and cons which go you want to make america great again now the media is very good at telling us how we should be feeling however a more nuanced look at the data can sometimes throw up some surprising results it
would happen r.t. new york. at least forty secondary schools across england has banned people from wearing skirts some of them an acceptable putting them on the same list as facial piercings and even more on that reportedly considering switching to more gender neutral uniforms girls will now have to wear plain trousers just like the boys and it seems the reasons differ from school to school some hope to implement a more gender neutral policy while others hope to make life easier for the small but increasing number of transgender students one school though is signing says over the sexual sexualization of young women this illustrates fix the link to stay that we want a lot of the students are wearing skirts too short and that is why we are moving towards just trousers for girls in september when not everyone has accepted the new
policies though one parent we spoke to his firas that the school didn't ask the parents opinions before making changes to the uniform i was very sure. there was no council where the only parent so. all the no reason what so i can speak for on the bell and number of her class and i know the children will want to wear trousers all the time they should be given the choice to take away the choice is wrong. a petition has been launched against the uniform changes at that particular school arguing that there is nothing offensive about a girl's knees down but to kindy again thinks children should be free to choose whatever uniform they want to wear. dress for girls and girls want to dress like four or five but what is wrong with girls just like girls for eight
years says that school has been go a bill of war. quite a lot going on at the moment about changing different roles for. children and adults but let's bear in mind that they are a minority and not the majority we can't p.s. everybody all the time like. story with a happy ending now a chance encounter has reunited identical twin sisters after thirty five years they were separate is a birth in the russians to see of perm when a hospital mix up for their father take home the wrong baby here's how events unfolded. the.
old young lady and his friend was driving along the street and saw a woman looking exactly like leon she honked but the woman didn't recognize her so she called ileana asking why didn't she recognize her when i was really surprised because she wasn't. just. us. the people a nurse the baby was in a blanket the nurse showed me her face and asked me sure you were such i said yes of course they knew the baby they gave her the choice thought she was mine. i remember being called all kinds of names it keeps it was on the book it hurts me
what i mean. i mean if it was i'm not up. to your local she's going to tell me she can use he has enough he's. so close you're in the form of the media. i'm with you more in the face when i was in the mumbles most and people many people from the film i want to move forward to get. join me every thursday on the alex simon show and i'll be speaking to guest of the world of politics sports business i'm show business i'll see you then.
i've been saying the numbers mean something they matter the u.s. has over one trillion dollars in debt more than ten white collar crimes happen each day. eighty five percent of global wealth you longs to the ultra rich eight point six percent market saw thirty percent rise last year some with four hundred to five hundred trades per second per second and bitcoin rose to twenty thousand dollars. china is building a two point one billion dollar a i industrial park but don't let the numbers overwhelm. the only numbers you need remember one one doesn't show you can afford to miss the one and only boom bust.
or there's a cause or for yeah we're still in paris it's so beautiful here in the quad chewy in the coffee so delicious let's check in with stays max we are in france where their flag is red white and blue and so is this episode airing on the third and fourth of july so i am wearing red white and blue top and i have articles relating to the big four the big four accounting firms i have to clarify that because there are also big four banks there are big four you know conglomerates running every single industry across the earth whether it's telecoms chips or things like that audit work on acceptable says watchdog key p.m.g. audits has shown an unacceptable deterioration will be subject to closer supervision the financial reporting council said every year this watchdog reviews
the work of the accounting the big four accounting firms the other big four outside of k.p.n. g.r.p. w c ernst and young and deloitte and they said in particular all of the big four were bad but in particular k p m g who of course where the auditors for karelian that outsourcing company that collapsed three months after k p m g had said their books showed that they were in perfect health at least for the next three years there's a lie in the statement they say they will be subject to closer scrutiny which is false i can tell you because they say this every year or so they say the exact same phrase over and over again they say oh we could we caught this big four accounting firm committing fraud so we're going to apply some closer scrutiny and then just to cover their own you know that's what they have to say to cover their legally they say well we said that we were going to apply closer scrutiny but then they never do because they're part of the racket this is racketeering with the accounting firms the the banks. the rating agencies the government and the central bank it's called
iraq it the u.k. profits from it handsomely that's how the aristocracy keeps going and that's not going to stop well actually will go a little bit into that in the upcoming headline but first someone is stay on this story and move to the next one about k p m g k p m g said it was quote disappointed and was taking steps to improve audit quality they were very disappointed in their their repeated bad auditing quality but the next headline and this comes from market watch in our friend francine mechanic who is a regular on kaiser report k p m g one b.b. v.a. audit was stolen data about rivals inspections and auditor was able to use access to confidential regulatory inspection data to get advance knowledge of his own inspections and also poached a client the revelation came in court documents supporting the u.s. government's case against former k p m g partners shows the confidential information was also used against the auditor's rivals so this is a complaint against four former partners in spain and
a former public account company accounting oversight board employee in spain the story dates back to twenty sixteen when a spanish bank b b v.a. was forced to solicit bids from other audit firms and switch from an audit relationship with deloitte spanish firm due to a european union mandatory audit rotation rules confidential information around these bids gave p.m.g. a secret advantage over rivals p w c and ernst and young ruler also eligible to bid on the audit they had an insider a guy who would have joined from the regulator the spanish regulator so he had these documents to showcase p.m.g. to give them an advantage over their rivals so the reason you even have a k p m g or any of these big four accounting firm because the tax laws are so convoluted that you have to hire outsiders to come for you what the government has just written and the government has just written these laws as per the consultations from these big four accounting firms to keep it. as labor and
byzantine and complicated as possible as a way to. toward competition they don't want any of these big firms they don't want any competition coming along without having to pay the extortion that is the fee to a big four accounting firm who works hand in glove with the government to prevent competition sony or stories like r.b.s. as a unit and they go in destroy thousands of british corporations to steal the assets and sell them off to another third party they work with thought in firms those books are all audited by big ordering firms out that they didn't make those numbers up themselves they hired outside orders from the big foreign press so we're going to go into what the big four has done to the united kingdom and this is about the first story the k p m g was found to have acted on acceptably in terms of their audits in the past year and in particular related to curl and now here is wall street's take on the big four audit oligarchies comes under scrutiny in the u.k. after corporate surprise collapses in fact an m.p.
in the united kingdom called them an oligarch e which you know if it were any other country especially ones that are not our allies we would say those are that's an oligarch you have four companies controlling or three companies or two companies so it's many industries across our world are controlled by just a few groups of powerful companies but here they're saying a wall street guardian article where they're looking at these big four accounting firms and what they find is that in britain the big forest consultants council ministers and officials on everything from health care to nuclear power although their advice is always labelled independent it invariably suits a raft of corporate clients with direct interest in it and unsurprisingly most of the consultants prescriptions such as marketisation of public services and tale yet more demand for their services in the years ahead so they are being placed inside parliament inside congress inside. parlance across the european union in the us and
they consult independently we're just giving independent advice to your representatives we're just helping everybody here we're giving we're helping out well in fact their advice always always they never say actually we should do something that spreads wealth more equitably or we should do something that allows people to earn their fair share of the pie that they've created that they've essentially that is our economy now it's always like well let's devise a system where say the health care system they mention in the united kingdom where we bring in united health from america where the c.e.o. makes one hundred million dollars a year he could perhaps make two hundred million dollars a year instead if you give him the british healthcare system and turn every british citizen what i'm sorry british subject to somebody like max and stacy who are plundered relentlessly monthly by obamacare or the government works out of him with these consultancies in the world to come up with oligarchies or you could call it a cartel and they could also point out that back it
a racket and as price fixing the mean one of the basic anti-competitive tricks that they use in these an accounting trick in their account and so they would know best they are engaged in price fixing so all those big four firms they collude which is also illegal and they fix price so they collude and they compete i mean obviously keep p.m.g. defrauded young and deloitte in that situation where they used unfair information incisor mation exactly like lehman brothers was caught not playing game ball with the other banks on wall street so had to be sacrificed a lot better start this is all of this story is an example of the fact that we have this revolving door we have it in the u.s. we have it everywhere where you have you know hank paulson leaving goldman sachs with two hundred million dollars tax free in joining the treasury and then he bails out goldman sachs and his other banker friends you have it on every layer of the big the big four banks the big four consultancy firms the big four auditing firms the big. for telecom companies the big four chip makers the big four defense
contractors the big four whatever they want the big four get whatever they want so that's something to be celebrated in the big four but in the u.k. the big four audit ninety nine of the footsie one hundred companies and ninety seven percent of the footsie three hundred fifty from ninety five percent five years ago so it's actually gone up since the financial crisis despite e.u. and u.k. reforms a stand simply aimed at tackling a lack of competition in the sector as a pattern that is replicated throughout advanced economies and the vast majority of member states a combined market share of the big four audit firms for listed companies exceeds ninety's percent but it's in the consulting business where the real money is being made right not that competitive they hate competition they don't want competition that's what it is form a cartel to stop all the competition and to engage in every known illegal activity to prevent competition and it's only it's only getting worse as the crisis because they have the cooperation of the central bank of england who will manipulate
interest rates as we found out during the crisis that they were jimmying the interest rates for their wall street in the city of london friends so no nobody no institution in the u.k. is. not part of the wreckage because there is a racket everywhere in cartels and all of these and oligarchs everywhere it's like you have bigger and bigger firms and we've covered this and kai's reports since the financial crisis the banks have got the big four banks got bigger the big four telecom companies got bigger the big four tech companies social media companies all got way bigger so then you know it becomes harder to introduce competition because there's so mammoth there just so giant with offshore vehicles and you know tax laundering all around the world so how does one control these giant corporations and in terms of where they said the real money comes from the consulting side and that's where the. you know that's where you see the back and forth the most is
nobody wants to the real work of having to look through your number as an author books you become a consultant and you just basically plunder the state on behalf of your friends you have like a lot of these former prime ministers and financial treasury secretaries like the chancellor of the exchequer they go on to big banks for american banks they become consultants there for one day a week million pounds a year sort of thing the real money is definitely being made in two thousand and seventeen the big forest combined global annual revenues reached one hundred thirty four billion dollars and the rate of their growth keeps expanding faster than the world they serve as the guardian reports in their oldest markets the u.k. and the u.s. these big four accounting firms are growing at more than twice the rate of those countries' economies by twenty sixteen across one hundred fifty countries the big four employed eight hundred ninety thousand people which was more than the five most valuable companies in the world combined so they go twice as fast.
